Police seek assault suspect in Monroe

MONROE — Police on Tuesday were asking for the public’s help to identify an assault suspect who reportedly used a razor blade or box cutter to slash a man Sunday.

The attack happened outside an apartment building in the 18400 block of Blueberry Lane. The victim, 30, told police he was standing outside his apartment around 7:18 p.m. when someone kicked him and cut him with some sort of blade.

The man received minor injuries to his stomach and leg. He was treated at the hospital and released.

A police dog searched the area but wasn’t able to locate the suspect.

The victim said his attacker was Hispanic and wore a black hooded sweatshirt and possibly white shoes. Police believe the man ran from the scene toward Blueberry Lane.
